Birmingham City Women midfielder Heidi Logan has penned professional terms with the Club.

“It’s amazing,” she said. “I’m delighted to have signed my first professional contract and I didn’t expect it at all, so that makes it even better for me.”

The young star joined the Regional Talent Club (RTC) in 2015 from local rivals West Bromwich Albion when she was 14-years-old.

Two years later, she was asked to train with the first-team. However, during the last campaign she was hit by a set-back which saw her side lined with injury for eight months.

But now after being asked to join the senior side’s preparation during preseason, she was also handed her contract.

She said: “Training’s been much harder, but I think I’ve adapted well to it. I’m excited for the future and to see what is going to happen.

“My ambition is to make my debut for the first team. After that you never know what could happen, but I’d like to play for them week in, week out. But I’m still young.

“I’m an attacking threat and I’m always trying to score goals, which is important because goals win you games.”

Logan also praised the supportive nature of manager Marta Tejedor, who has shown faith in the midfielder.

She said: “Marta’s been really welcoming and very supportive”.

“She wants to get to know everyone, so I think that will help me and the Club in the future because if your manager wants to get to know the players it will help our progression. She’s really helpful and wants the best for all of her players.”

While on the pitch, Logan looks up to Connie Scofield – a successful graduate of the Club’s RTC.

“I look up to Connie because she’s a great role model,” she said. “Whenever she’s been to play a game with the Academy squad, she always tries her best and is the perfect professional”.
